Moore Spring

The (long overdue) arrival of warm weather in New England has meant that I’ve been wishfully thinking “spring” for a few months now without being able to dress the part. Finally, on a sunny day a few weeks ago, when it finally felt like I might not be forcing it, I decided to dig in to my bin of summer clothes that had been packed away all winter. Dressing up in colors I hadn’t worn since last summer season inspired me to break out some locally-sourced accessories I hadn’t worn in a while: my Angela Moore bracelets.

If you encountered me circa spring 2009, you’d find me rocking these pretty pastel beads at least once a week. Before Alex and Ani or Kiel James Patrick came on the RI bracelet scene, my friends and I were all voracious Angela Moore collectors, accruing large collections of painted bracelets with matching necklaces or earrings, in many cases. When birthdays rolled around, a little blue bag emblazoned with AM’s leafy logo was a welcome gift. Since they were such a staple when I was little, I tend to associate them with my lovely little island home – appropriately so, given that the only Angela Moore store outside of Florida is in Newport. It’s been quite a few summers since I actually wore them downtown, but I’m definitely thinking of bringing them back in to my jewelry rotation this year!

An Irish Surprise

Last week I was pumped when I got home and had received a package. After all, who doesn’t like packages?! There’s always something thrilling about any sort of mail, but the excitement of a potential surprise contained in a specially shipped, brown box is extra special. The contents did not disappoint! My aunt (who seems to just always know what to get me as a great gift…) and cousin had been at the store-opening for Alex and Ani‘s new Georgetown location, and bought this PGA Tour Lucky Golf Ball bangle for me to add to my collection. PGA Alex and Ani

Now, I was completely shocked when I saw this, because although I obviously have seen PGA-related gear before, I’d never seen a shamrock added into the logo. The design is especially significant to me because my dad used to take a green Sharpie and mark all his golf balls with a little shamrock. We even added that detail in to the logo for the PVQ Memorial Golf Tournament! Apparently, this was the last one they had in the store too. The bracelet was such a special surprise on so many levels, and I’m thrilled to wear it! Thanks Ann & Beck!
